>> hello, i'm jay key hayward. hurricane earl is towards the east coast of the united states but it weakened to a category three storm this morning. however, that's not stopping local government officials from preparing for the worst. maryland governor o'malley met with his emergency management team. however, he is not calling for evacuations.
12:01 pm
>> we have to be on guard. these storms do damage, as we saw in hurricane isabel. >> with the storm coming, there's no better time than now to check your supplies and do you have an emergency plan? >> meanwhile, virginia governor mcdonald plans to declare an emergency in the commonwealth. that will allow the national guard and the state emergency personnel to have enough time to get in place, should the hurricane change course. hurricane watches have been issued for virginia. art howard has been looking at the maps and has the latest. howard? >> let's reiterate. yes, it's category 3, 125 miles per hour sustained wind. it's a little weaker but still a major hurricane. here's the hurricane warnings in eastern north carolina and you can see the entire outer banks to the state line.
12:02 pm
now, around here, hurricane -- south open but tidewater, norfolk and hampton roads up have to watch out. this is likely to be upgrade to a tropical storm warning, maybe tonight or tomorrow, as we get closer 24 hours out. those are the warnings as they stand now. the hurricane itself is well defined, impressive looking, color enhanced, you can see the clouds wrapping around the center. it has a chance to get stronger moving north and east. on 9 futurecast, you can see the storm skirting the coast and by midday friday, beginnings to pull north and east. heaviest around coastal areas. we may not have rain and we need train but this is a coastal storm, not so much here we'll have problem with the waves and beach erosion. category three storm through friday. it will pull out for the
12:03 pm
weekend but still a category three or two storm as it move in the midatlantic. i'll have more including the seven-day in a few minutes. >> thank you, howard. officials are planning to meet today and will brief the media this afternoon. we're in ocean city with the latest on conditions and preparations for that storm. scott, what can you tell us? >> reporter: well, just like howard, the emergency managers at ocean city's emergency operations center are watching the forecast carefully. they're going to take a look at the midday forecast in a 1:00 meeting today and likely at the meeting they will make decisions here at ocean city along maryland's coast about whether or not to ratchet up the level of preparedness. right now they're preparing for the worst and hope for the best, as howard was just suggest, the stormtrack looks like it will be taken off the coast but the cone of indecision in those forecasts does cover ocean city so they are going to prepare for that
12:04 pm
today. right now, they're talking about the possibility of tropical storm force wind for a period of time on friday. some big sur of and maybe 2 or 3 inches of rain. they're hoping the storm will be moving very quickly and that will minimize the chance of serious beach erosion. one of the big problems they dealt with here last weekend with hurricane danielle, several hundred miles offshore, was big sur of and a lot of erosion on the beach that created dangerous conditions in the surf. one man did drown on saturday. his body still hasn't been found and there were a number of serious injury that occurred this week because the profile of the beach changed. it got steeper and with smaller waves coming in and crashing onto the sand, it's been dangerous so beach patrol is trying to keep people safe. they're watching the surf carefully. a beautiful day here and the forecast shows the storm is likely to pass by here quickly and skies will clear to present beautiful conditions for saturday, sunday, and monday, the holiday weekend.
12:05 pm
so here in ocean city, they're not only preparing for a storm but preparing for a lot of people to come flooding into town as soon as the skies clear and, of course, the surf will be rough at that time so that's something they will think about. energy briefing at 1:00 and they will make decisions. we'll have all the information for you later today on 9 news at 5:00, 6:00, and 7:00 and well into the evening. live in ocean city, scott broom, 9 news now. >> thank you, scott. get the latest on our website at as earl makes its way towards the carolina coast, there is concern about the storm's impact. philip jones of our sister station wfmy is live in nagshead and he is getting a sense of how people are preparing for the storm and why some residents are being told to leave. philip? >> reporter: yes, good afternoon, jaycee. we're in nagshead on the outer banks but to the south,

12:19 pm
beach erosion. last time i was at beth enemy, there wasn't a lot but we have to be concerned in the eastern part of north carolina. the outer banks will be very close to that eye. if this goes a little further west, it could hit the outer banks but right now we think it will stay offshore. let's get you going your forecast first on this warmth, a little sticky wednesday afternoon, 89 now, humidity come up a bit, around 94 for the high at 3:00 and then 6:00 p.m., sunny, hot, 91. if you had evening plans, ball game or something, yeah, it will be a little rough. air quality -- code orange, better than yesterday's code red. this afternoon, sunny, hot, not too humid, mid90 was winds at 10 miles per hour. clear and mild tonight. 60s and 70s, could be light fog, sunset at 7:38. and tomorrow will be another day, hot again but not as hot, low 90s so we're going to the
12:20 pm
right direction. south wind on the light side of 5 to 10 miles per hour. the heat is up and down the east coast. richmond, 92. atlantic city, 93. we sit at 89 with my 80s in the mound to ins -- mid-80s in the mountains. locally, 91 win chest we are 92 orange. fredericks burg, 93. pats river, 93. there is plenty enough heat and this will change because we have a front coming with the hurricane that will pass by. east-southeast wind bringing in a little more moisture so we're not as dry or pleasant. here's the change we're talking about. see the front in the midwest with the showers and storm. as this comes east, it will nudge earl just enough -- we believe -- that earl will have a glancing blow as oppose to a direct hit on the outer banks and this high pressure which has been hanging -- excuse me -- also get pushed out of the
12:21 pm
way. earl has been a problem, will be a problem, hurricane warnings are up for eastern north carolina. you can see a tropical storm warning from the inlet to cape fear. i don't know how to pronounce it. bogue. i'm saying "boeg." this is where we have the hurricane watches. this will be a tropical storm warning when all is said and done as the storm gets closer. there it is, a well-defined area of low pressure which with the eye and storm surrounding it, wind at 125 miles per hour moving west at 17 and only 730 miles from hatteras right now. it will approach hatteras friday morning. 7:00 friday morning, category three storm, 115 miles per hour. comes up and pass us, a little further east, but still, a category three storm so a lot of wave and wind action on the coast and this may get martha's vineyard friday night before pulling out into canada on saturday. so we'll be doing better once we get rid of earl.
12:22 pm
friday morning midday is the worst. don't cancel your weekend plans at the beach because it will be cooler saturday and sunday, low 80s. labor day, 88 and 90s on tuesday. stick around. we're in the kitchen when we return.
